  author={Jian Wen and Junguo Zhang and Lin Gao and Xinlei Li},
The Simplified Aid for EVA Rescue (SAFER) System uses 24 GN2 thrusters to achieve six degree-of freedom maneuvering control and Automated Attitude Hold (AAH) control. It is a typical hybrid control system and difficult to model. In this article, we applied the virtual prototyping technology; and used MATLAB/Simmechanics for modeling and simulation of the SAFER system. The implementation model of hybrid control system for SAFER is demonstrated, including kinematic and dynamic model, and logical…
